Happy 48th Birthday, Patrick Dempsey!

at .

Grey's Anatomy may be on a lengthy hiatus, but at least it's core cast members are keeping busy.

Jesse Williams recently welcomed his first child into the world and now Patrick Dempsey is turning 48 years old!

Yes, the long-time star celebrates his birthday today and we'd have to expect he does so by driving really fast in a car. Aside from acting, that is Dempsey's main hobby.
